(hammer) >> the sound of hammers. now heard again in california. new employment figures out today show the state's construction industry is finally reviving. grant lodes is here with the latest numbers from washington. >> yeah they are not all good. california still has the country's worst unemployment rate. for the past three months, california's unemployment rate has been stuck at nine=point=eight percent. the federal bureau of labor statistics says that's nearly two points above the national average of seven point nine percent. but over the last year, california has added more than a quarter=million jobs.
5:33pm
that's more than any other state. except texas. now let's drill down to the construction industry. nationally, employment in that sector increased by 28=thousand. one quarter of that total was in california. and thesee numbers are from january, not the busiest time of the year for contractors. economists say there is a direct correlation to the real estate market. there are not enough homes on the market now to meet the demand. as prices rise, home builders have started to ramp up new construction. housing starts still are well below what they were before the financial crisis, but they are higher than they've been in four years. more hammers and more saws equal more jobs. hospitality and leisure jobs sector also grew exponentially. >> catherine: the vatican has released details of the pope's installation mass tomorrow.. it will be a simpler version of the 2005 ceremony for pope benedict. more than 132 government
